Fire-fighting measures

5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media:
water spray, dry powder, carbon dioxide, alcohol-resistant foam

5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide
The substances/groups of substances mentioned can be released in case of fire. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air.

5.3. Advice for fire-fighters
Special protective equipment:
Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and chemical-protective clothing.

Further information:
Collect contaminated extinguishing water separately, do not allow to reach sewage or effluent systems. If exposed to fire, keep containers cool by spraying with water. Dispose of fire debris and contaminated extinguishing water in accordance with official regulations

Accidental release measures

An explosive atmosphere can be formed in the case of a spillage. If large amounts are released contact the fire service.

6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Use personal protective clothing. Information regarding personal protective measures, see section 8. Keep unprotected persons away. Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid all sources of ignition: heat, sparks, open flame. Avoid contact with the skin, eyes and clothing. Avoid inhalation. Take off immediately all contaminated clothing.

6.2. Environmental precautions
Discharge into the environment must be avoided. Suppress gases/vapours/mists with water spray jet. Prevent entry into sewage systems, ground and surface waters.

6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
For small amounts: Contain with absorbent material (e.g. sand, silica gel, acid binder, general purpose binder, sawdust).
For large amounts: Pump off product.
Cleaning operations should be carried out only while wearing breathing apparatus. To clean the floor and all objects contaminated by this material, use plenty of water. Collect waste in suitable containers, which can be labeled and sealed. Incinerate or take to a special waste disposal site in accordance with local authority regulations.

6.4. Reference to other sections
Information regarding exposure controls/personal protection and disposal considerations can be found in section 8 and 13.

Handling and storage

7.1. Precautions for safe handling

When filling, transferring, or emptying of containers, adequate local exhaust ventilation is necessary.

Protection against fire and explosion:
If exposed to fire, keep containers cool by spraying with water. Vapours may form explosive mixture with air. Prevent electrostatic charge - sources of ignition should be kept well clear - fire extinguishers should be kept handy. Containers should be earthed during decanting operations.

7.2. Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Further information on storage conditions: Keep container tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking.
